A second chance at making an impact at the Division I level is what junior tight end Jamal Mosley is hoping to do now as a member of the Ole Miss Rebels.

One of the biggest questions surrounding the Ole Miss football team heading into the 2011 season was which of the three quarterbacks on scholarship would become the starter for the season opener against BYU on Sept. 3.

Heading into the second scrimmage of the spring on Saturday at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium, Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt wanted to see his team show more consistency on both sides of the ball.
